About the Event

On December 11th, we will be hosting a joint benefit for Riseup, a 10 year old tech collective that provides email and list hosting for much of the activist community, and UBEW, our local radical tech collective. Our goal is to raise between $2000 and $4000 for Riseup.  This will also support UBEW's modest budget in the next year.

You are invited.  It will, we believe, be quite an extraordinary affair.
